Attitude of Gratitude **MLS BLOG HOP**



Welcome everyone to My Little Shoebox's THANKFUL blog hop! :) If you are just stopping by, why not start the hop at the beginning on the MLS blog. If you came from Aphra, then you are in the right place. Wasn't Aphra's project amazing!!! I just loved it.

There will be a prize awarded to one lucky winner of THEIR CHOICE of a MLS collection! I think that is cool that they are letting you choose. Make sure you leave comments on all the blogs in the hop.

So today I will be sharing a layout with you. Last year on facebook I started doing this "Attitude of Gratitude" thing where I tried to be mindful of what I was thankful for throughout the month of November. I am doing it again this year, but I am trying to do it everyday. If you are my friend on facebook then you will have seen my posts. :) I've noticed that a lot of people are doing it this year and I just think that is FANTASTIC! I thought it would be cool to document that. It's always good to be reminded of the good things in life. So I copied and pasted all my posts from last year and used them on a layout...I plan to do the same for this year.

Here is the layout I made...



I mixed it up and used a variety of lines from My Little Shoebox. I used Helmar adhesives to adhere it all...I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and then a variety of Zapdots to pop up a few things.

Here are some close up's of my layout:





Those flowers are stamped and embossed, then I stitched on top of them to make it kinda look like a banner. :)


And it wouldn't be a blog hop without prizes, right? :) Besides the grand prize....

I will have my own giveaway. To be eligible, simply leave a comment on my blog post and I will draw one lucky winner. :) Here's the prize:




These fabulous mini alphabets are the most popular item MLS makes. You can win 6 different colors: Limeade, Brownie, Lollipop, Pearl, Razzleberry, and Mermaid.


Oh and before you hop on....

I have a few layouts up at Scrapbooks, Etc that are in the running for a $100 prize! If you like them, I would LOVE your votes! Check them out here ("Captured Joy"), here ("Makes My Heart Happy") and here ("Chocolate"). THANKS!!!!!



Ok and now it is time to hop on to the fabulous and incredibly talented Carol!!!


Have a fantastic day! Hope you stop in again! :)
